Easy Skillet Apple Pie!

Easy Skillet Apple Pie!I never thought to make an apple pie in a skillet, but it is truly a great idea because it's so quick and easy! I found this recipe here on a food blog called Lemon Sugar!

This is one of the best apple pies I have ever tasted! The brown sugar and butter form an almost caramel like sauce in this pie! You can make this with a scratch pie crust if you want, but I just used 2 sheets of refrigerator pie crust. You can usually find these kinds of pie crusts in the section of the grocery store where they sell refrigerator biscuit dough.

I slightly tweaked the recipe because I didn't have the same items mentioned in the original recipe. I used my new favorite Gastrolux  pan!  See those pans hereI was very happy with my results! I will be making this many more times in the future!

2  sheets of refrigerator pie dough - allow to come to room temperature for about 15 min.
6 Tbls. butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 and 1/2 tsp. cinnamon, divided
2 Tbls. granulated white sugar
5 apples peeled, cored and thinly sliced - I used Fuji apples
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. fresh squeezed lemon juice

 Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.  In a 10-12 inch oven safe skillet, melt the butter over medium-high heat.  Add the brown sugar and 1 tsp. of cinnamon to the skillet, and mix well. Cook sugar mixture for about 2 minutes, then  add the apples, and mix well to coat the apples completely. 
Sprinkle the apple mixture with salt and lemon juice.
 Mix well and then remove from heat.
 Unroll the 2 room temp pie dough and cover the apples with crusts. The crusts will overlap. Push the edges of the dough into the skillet.  Do not pinch the pie dough on to the skillet, just tuck the edges down the inside of the skillet.  Sprinkle the entire top of the dough evenly with the white sugar and cinnamon. If using a shallow skillet, put the skillet on a foil-lined baking sheet to catch anything that might bubble over the edge of the skillet.
Bake for about 30 minutes or until the crust is nicely browned.
 Let cool before serving...if you can wait that long!
 Serves 10-12


  1. Hi Micki here what is the purpose of double pie crusts on top? Did not see option to sign in with my facebook account :)

    1. Hi Micki! I think the double crust is just to give the pie a thicker crust! It worked great! =D
